The most popular aquarium ever on Kickstarter. $375,058 raised from 5,434 backers
The EcoQube C is the lowest maintenance desktop aquarium currently available. No water changes, ever.
The heart of the EcoQube C is the aquaponics filter, which we’ve integrated into the tank to create an all-in-one system that uses plants like Basil or Mint to keep your aquarium clean.
The new beautifully integrated design is durable, portable, and compact. We’ve made it more affordable while maintaining the high quality product build. It’s now even easier to maintain with less parts and automatic functionality, and it’s designed in San Diego.
Born in San Francisco, California, Kevin Liang grew up in the world’s innovation capital.
In middle school, he became familiar with the aquarium industry by working at a local aquarium store before going on to work at one of the largest aquaponics farms in the United States while attending college at UCSD.
While at the farm, Kevin realized how big of an impact aquaponics could make on the future of the Earth.
As the world has become increasingly industrialized, so too has come major food and water supply issues.
With an innovative spirit derived from growing up in San Francisco, Kevin began to wonder how the benefits of aquaponics could be brought to the whole world.
And with that question, the EcoQube journey began.
After brainstorming with top minds in the industry, Kevin quickly realized that another farm was out of the picture for him at the time.
Creating a farm involved huge startup costs and would not likely breakeven for years.
Instead, Kevin decided to rely on his experience from the aquarium industry, and decided to shrink the concept of aquaponics down into an easily accessible, beautiful, modern garden.
